Tantra is such a wide subject. It’s easy to research – all you have to do is Google ‘tantric massage’ or ‘tantra’ and you’re greeted with thousands of massage tips and tantric therapists claiming to change your life forever. Among these tips, blogs and therapist advice, there’s also a lot of pornographic links so it’s easy to get lost in this wide world of tantra. Tantra is rooted in many cultures so each person’s understanding of the art will vary from person to person. Overall, tantra is an ideology and a way of life. Tantric massage is merely a small element of that. What else can we discover as we dig deeper?
Originally from India and practised around 5AD, tantra has footholds in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is a form of meditative therapy that was practised as a way of achieving enlightenment through harnessing sensual energy. This energy is extremely powerful and when efficiently circulated around the body, can encourage a highly energised and positive state of mind. While there are many ways to approach it, there are three major parts that are vital in authentic tantric massage sessions…
- Meditation and breathing
Erotic massage is based on tantra – that’s why it’s important to check if your masseuse has been trained in tantra before you have your erotic Asian massage session. Tantra uses meditative techniques in order to create a deep connection between the masseuse and the receiver. Breathing plays an extremely important role. By just concentrating on your breathing and incorporating certain techniques, you can find yourself becoming much more relaxed which will enhance your erotic massage experience.
Breathing can be anything from deep, relaxed breaths to short, sharp inhales. These two opposites are used in tantra because they engage the body in different ways and create different reactions. Another tip is to breathe in sync with the masseuse. This synchrony helps the two bodies connect, spiritually as well as physically, and helps them bond as they travel along this path of discovery.
- Balancing the Chakras
According to tantric practitioners, there are seven energy centres in the body. Named Chakras, these centres start at the base of the spine and work upwards in a vertically straight line. It’s said that illnesses are caused when these Chakras are blocked. Thus, regularly taking precautions to realign the Chakras and the energy pipes open will help keep the body and mind healthy.
The Chakra points directly correspond to different parts of the body, internal as well as external, and are responsible for our emotional states of mind too. In some ways, these Chakra points are where your physical and spiritual sides come together. When you experience an authentic tantric massage, the masseuse will use her specialist skills to unblock and rejuvenate these pressure points.
Being aware of your intentions before you come into an authentic tantric massage gives the session a goal and hence, a direction to work towards. For example, it could be that you want to nurture intimacy, build a connection with another person, explore pleasure and your sexuality, heal emotional wounds or improve sex drive. Tantra is so wide that it’s important to channel your energy in the right direction so you get the best results. When you get a traditional Swedish massage, you usually tell the therapist which parts of the body you’d like her to work on so why shouldn’t you do this during an authentic tantric massage?
Naked oriental massages such as erotic massage and full body sensual massage are all based on these tantric rituals. No matter how sexually geared they may sound, erotic massages are still a great way to gain an insight into your own spirituality. That’s why they leave you feeling so refreshed and rejuvenated.
